From Paul, a prisoner for the sake of Christ Jesus, and from our brother Timothy - To our friend and fellow worker Philemon,
and the church that meets in your house, and our sister Apphia, and our fellow soldier Archippus: 13
May God our Father and the Lord Jesus Christ give you grace and peace.
Brother Philemon, every time I pray, I mention you and give thanks to my God.
For I hear of your love for all of God's people and the faith you have in the Lord Jesus.
My prayer is that our fellowship with you as believers will bring about a deeper understanding of every blessing which we have in our life in union with Christ.
